A friend of mine sent me his model release form so that I can use it for my own use. It looks great to me, however, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or comments on it before I went ahead and used it. I might also document the model holding their ID on digital as well to add to my record of them, but some situations may not make that possible...

Let me know what you think!
